Default why I got the compressor...

I gathered a lot of tools over the years but one of the things on top of my wish list was a planishing hammer. Finally bit the bullit last month and ordered a hand held Eckold hammer. I chose this one because the quality of Eckold is second to none and also because I can build a frame to use it stationairy but I cant use a stationairy hammer hand held....

I`ll do some testing after I`ve read the manual... :-)

Congratulations, dutch! We'll look forward to your test results!


I find Windows 10 doesn't play well with phone pics. (I sometimes have to edit before uploading here.)

Some of us have had trouble with pictures and no smilies as well. I use the http://ratrodsrule.com address rather than https://ratrodsrule.com ---- eliminating the s connects you to the "not secure" site (which does absolutely no harm) and frees up the pictures/smilies.

A "secure" address is necessary for commercial sites where you might enter credit card and other personal info, completely unnecessary for a public forum.

I dont own a smart phone just a really dumb one, not capable of taking pics.
The pics are uploaded from my computer. Never had any problems with that...
I ve always used the http site, but I`ll have to check whats on my computer now.

Glad to help.

Windows 10 (by default) tries to connect you to secure URLs, but you already know that!

What's wrong with the pictures? Just yours?

I get that occasionally and I don't know why it happens. I've had to correct the sideways attachment by removing it and "modifying" the original.

I open the image in Paint and rotate a couple times, whether it needs it or not. Close and "save changes" when its upright again. Though I haven't changed anything, the "edit" sticks and loads properly...
